ORIGINAL POST: It’s going to be a huge week for data, and this is our first number.

At 8:30 AM, March Personal Income & Spending comes out.

Analysts are looking for 0.3% growth in income, a slight tick up from 0.2% growth in the month before.

Meanwhile, they’re looking for 0.4% growth in spending, sharply down from the 0.8% in the previous month.

Once again, analysts foresee spending outpacing income, something that arguably can’t be sustained.

We’ll have the number here LIVE at 8:30 AM ET.
